UPDATED: OCT 10, 2010 Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a thick head. Aroma is very hoppy. Tastes of citrus hops with a sweet caramel. Alcohol warmth more than taste. Not as bitter as expected, actually pretty well balanced, and definitely to my taste.

Draugt at De Klomp in Lkpg, Sweden. What can I say. It´s very bitter!! Well, I know, it´s intended to be that but it´s little to much for my taste. Even for me who likes bitter and hopy beer.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Solid nose, lots of funky danky hops. Caramel malt and light residual sugar as well. Somewhat balanced and unexpected when confronted with the name 1000 IBU. Pours amber brown with a nice head, not much lace, but solid retention. The flavor is a bit of funky herbal danky hops up front followed by caramel, residual sugar, and then a funky hoppy blast to finish it out. Reminded me a bit of hopsickle. Light alcohol, long lasting hop flavors, many minutes after beer is finished. Lots of hoppy burps. Nice stuff. Medium carbonation, creamy body, danky dry finish like I just smoked a blunt or something.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2012 Bottle at ChrisO "I?m Trying to see the Stool" pre GBBF2010 tasting. Syrupy hoppy, but it?s pretty good going. Not oveerly hot. Bit sweet. Good hop, but not bitter. 738315 3.6/5. re-rate bottle from Menno. Cheers my friend. Deep brown orange with a few floaters. Lasting beige head. Very toasty hoppy aroma. Hoppy as hell in mouth. Good bitterness on finish. Christ on a bike thats hoppy. A rather lovely double ipa with almost eye watering bitter hoppiness. Gorgeous though

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2010
Large cream almost beige head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Cloudy amber color. Aroma of heavy heavy hoppy notes like never before. Unbelievable thick oily and hoppy citrus with some fruity notes in there as well. Full bodied with an average carbonation and heavy dry texture. Extreme bitterness with some counter sweetness. Lingering dry and bitter hoppy finish.

fear025 (213) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Aroma:Sweet malt, and piney hops. Appearance:Dark brown, and low head, but the head is long lasting with tiny bubbles. Taste:Extremely bitter right up front, but the midtaste through the aftertaste has sweet caramel flavors, reminiscent of a barley wine. The foretaste tastes a lot like the multivitamins my mom used to feed me, ugh. The aftertaste is surprisingly mellow for a beer like this. Mouthfeel:This one is pretty harsh. The body is medium to heavy. Drinkability:I think this is one of those beers that I’m glad I tried, but didn’t actually enjoy very much while drinking.

Colour... looks just like unfiltered apple cidre. Nose... citrusy hops. Palate... just a bit hoppy!! Chewy as all get out! Feel like I just chewed on a grapefruit skin and a hop cone, at the same time. Certainly not 1,000 IBU’s but quite a hoppy number nonetheless.

From the Bottle at Chris O’s pre GBBF tasting, Kensal Rise 31/07/2010 Big hop aroma. Thick creamy head. Amber coloured strong in alcohol and very hoppy with a pine flavour. A hint of dryness in a very bitter malt finish.

wedgie9 (2071) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 12, 2010
Tasted from bottle purchased at West Lakeview Liquors. Pours dark amber with a whole lot of chunky sediment and a thick tan head with solid retention. Nose is very sweet toasty malt with an underlying earthy component and a small amount of aromatic hops in the background. Flavor is way hoppier than the nose would have suggested, but there is still a good balance with the super caramelized toasty malts and the sweetness. The body is full with soft carbonation and a long super bitter finish.

Bottled@The Chriso rock the roof down pre-GBBF tasting. Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is bigtime zesty and fruity. Flavour is the same along with some nectar and grass. Doesn’t feel anywhere near 1000 IBU though. Mild notes of alcohol as it gets a bit warmer.
